The Three Outer Planets:
This section reviews some of the technical aspects of astrology used to generate this report. If you wish to go directly to your personalised interpretations, skip this section and return to it at a later time. The personal information begins on page 5.
This report interprets your birth chart from the point of view of career factors in the horoscope. The material is drawn from four sources: (1) the astrological literature, (2) Carl Jung's writings on psychological types, (3) scientific research on vocation and the planets (especially the work of French statistician Michel Gauquelin), and (4) the author's experience as an astrologer over many years.
Many of the interpretations assume that you know your birth time accurately within a few minutes. If you are uncertain of the exact time, you can either cast a chart for SUNRISE of your date and place of birth or choose the UNKNOWN birth time feature of the program. The sunrise chart provides an informative general report for anyone born on the same date and in the same place on earth and offers a valuable perspective on vocational issues. Clicking on the Unknown time button calculates the Moon and planets for Noon for the place of birth, but places them in a solar houses chartwheel. The unknown time report omits interpretations for time-sensitive points.
This material is based on large statistical samples. Most people find that about 80% of the interpretations fit them closely whereas about 20% appear less applicable. If contradictory traits appear in the report, it is likely that both traits are aspects of your personality, but they are in conflict or vie with each other for expression. Astrology affords one of many perspectives on career potential. You should weigh the contents of this report with other sources of information such as your school record, job experience, vocational testing, your own sense of your likes and dislikes, and input from people who know you well. Astrology can guide you by suggesting options, but you alone have the ultimate responsibility to decide on a career path.
The birth chart outlines your potentials -- what you may become depending on how you develop your talents and confront your challenges and liabilities. It also helps you to identify your essential needs and chief motivations. The chart can both validate what you know of yourself and suggest further possibilities. It is up to each of us to weigh these factors in deciding on a career path that will be satisfying and promote personal growth. There are many paths open to each of us; our final destination depends on the choices we make along the way.
The natal horoscope taken in its entirety is a symbol of the person as a whole. Jung called this type of symbol a mandala. The signs of the zodiac represent twelve basic needs (and their corresponding challenges) that must be met in the course of human development. A particular planet can occupy any of the twelve signs and thus has available twelve different modes (signs) for expressing its fundamental planetary drive or energy.
The houses of the horoscope symbolise the twelve broad areas of life where we seek to fulfil our basic needs. The planets signify the fundamental urges, drives, energies, or functions of the human personality. Each planet occupies a particular sign and a particular house. In addition, the planets make connections among themselves (the aspects) that clarify how these energies connect with each other. Soft aspects (sextiles, trines, and conjunctions of harmonious planets) show natural abilities and things that come our way easily without much toil. Hard aspects (squares, oppositions, and conjunctions of inharmonious planets) show challenges and talents that require work to develop but that may lead to significant achievements.
In vocational astrology the second, sixth, and tenth houses are the most important. The second house indicates what resources (talents, values, money, and assets) are at our disposal for developing our self-worth and making a living. The sixth house symbolises the work environment, our co-workers, and the type of day-to-day labour involved. The tenth house is the quintessential house of career and shows where we can become successful and achieve recognition in the eyes of the world. Pay careful attention to the second, sixth, and tenth houses when reading this report. Consider the signs on their cusps, the planets ruling those signs, and the planets within those houses.
Also consider the strengths and weaknesses of this type of information. A computer-generated interpretation can only list and describe the individual astrological factors in your chart, but it cannot synthesise them into a coherent story. You will need to put everything together into a meaningful whole that best fits your life experience and personal development. At some point, you may wish to consult a professional astrologer for further insight into your birth map.
An important key is to pay close attention to any themes that come up repeatedly in the report. Such recurring themes represent significant needs that must be met for you to have a satisfying career. In addition, because the planet Saturn is so closely linked to what we do in the world, it is especially useful to study the information about Saturn in your chart. In several places, there are lists of various occupations taken from the astrological literature. These job lists should be understood merely as illustrations of general principles rather than as specific recommendations of a career to pursue. It is not possible to pinpoint a single specific vocational choice in a horoscope.
Regarding the Gauquelin research, the author has found that Gauquelin's findings about the meanings of planets in high intensity zones generalise to planets that are emphasised in other ways, according to the rules of traditional astrology.
ASCENDANT AND CUSPS OF VOCATIONAL HOUSES
The horoscope is divided into twelve sections or "houses," which are patterned after the twelve signs of the zodiac. Each house represents a different area of life, and the sign of the zodiac on the cusp of each of the houses describes how we express the matters governed by that house. In vocational astrology, the most relevant houses are the First House whose cusp is the Ascendant, the Second House of income, the Sixth House of daily work, and the Tenth House of Career whose cusp is the Midheaven. The houses are derived from your exact date, time, and place of birth.
The Rising Sign or Ascendant
The Ascendant is the sign of the zodiac that intersects the eastern horizon at the moment of birth. It is closely linked to our sense of personal identity and reflects how we present ourselves to the world. Each sign can be described by its Quality (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable), its Element (Fire, Earth, Air, Water), and its Polarity (Yin, Yang). Cardinal signs are outgoing and initiate activity; Fixed signs consolidate, build, and resist change; and Mutable signs are adaptable and make way for a new cycle. Fire signs are intuitive and inspirational; Earth signs are practical and dependable; Air signs are mental and communicative; and Water signs are sensitive and emotional. Yin signs are receptive and inner directed, whereas Yang signs are assertive and outer directed.
Mutable, Air, Yang
Keywords: versatile, inquisitive, clever, loquacious, communicative, curious, mobile, peripatetic, mercurial, witty, restless, playful, dextrous, logical, agile.
With Gemini rising, you tend to be outgoing and assertive when it comes to getting your needs met. You take charge when you have to, and you are generally straightforward and direct in dealing with others. You are adaptable and versatile, but you might need outside motivation because of your distractibility and love of variety. Most likely you are an idea person with a good understanding of other people and a knack for being of service. At times you may get a bit disorganised, getting caught up in details and failing to see the forest for the trees. Your ruling planet, Mercury, usually indicates excellent verbal and communication skills ("the gift of gab") and a fondness for travel, transport, movement, and being on the go.
Key phrases for Gemini are "I think," "I move about," and "I communicate." People with the Ascendant in Gemini gravitate toward occupations that make use of their cleverness, wit, restlessness, love of variety, and intellectual agility. Gemini is an adaptable, versatile, and communicative sign. You would do well in work that requires reading, studying, writing, experimentation, and conveying ideas to others. You might choose a career that involves travel, movement, sales, commerce, making contacts in the community, and becoming familiar with the local environment. Because Gemini (the twins) is a dual sign, you may find your time split between two jobs, two work places, or between a primary job and an income producing hobby. As Gemini rules the hands, your career may involve a fair amount of manual dexterity.
The Ascendant in Gemini is common among writers, journalists, lecturers, novelists, poets, teachers, counsellors, publishers, printers, dancers, musicians, inventors, perpetual students, and communicators. It may reveal a talent for secretarial or clerical work and is often found in the charts of those employed in agencies or in jobs having to do with transport. The Gemini fondness for motion and communication may indicate a talent to any form of communicative self-expression that involves bodily motion. It is also common in the charts of those whose work involves entertainment, film, TV, aviation, aeronautics, meteorology, astronomy, travel, psychology, the law, computers, mathematics, and science. In afflicted charts, career setbacks may be due to fickleness, playing fast and loose with the truth, gullibility, scattered thinking, an unsettled or erratic lifestyle, or nervous tension.
Some notable people with Gemini rising include Mario Andretti. Harry Belafonte, William F. Buckley, Fidel Castro, Julia Child, Phyllis Diller, Henry Kissinger, Timothy McVeigh, George Bernard Shaw, Bruce Springsteen, and Howard Stern.
The sign, house, and aspects of Mercury, which rules Gemini, will give further clues about your self-assertive drives. The same holds true of the decan ruler(s) indicated below.
THIRD DECAN: Your Ascendant lies between 20 and 30 degrees of Gemini. Hence, your sense of identity also comes under the influence of the third decan of Gemini, which is governed by AQUARIUS, URANUS, SATURN, and Chaldean ruler, the SUN. There is often great ambition and a desire to rise to a position of status, prominence, or authority. Many with this placement possess a singular trait or talent that makes them truly "one of a kind." Some well-known people with this decan rising include Fidel Castro, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Larry Flint, Steffi Graf, Timothy McVeigh, George Patton, Bruce Springsteen, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and Werner Von Braun.
Our vocation is shown by the tenth house, the sign and decan of its cusp (which is the Midheaven or MC in most house systems), the ruler(s) of the tenth, any planets therein, and any aspects involving tenth house planets, the tenth house ruler(s), or the MC.
Key phrases for Aquarius include "I innovate," "I associate," and "I'll do it my way." People with an Aquarius Midheaven do not fit the typical career mould. They seek occupations that allow free reign to their inventive, experimental, original, and innovative way of doing things. Their frequent flashes of insight allow them to make unique and novel contributions. They are generally humane and civic-minded, and they value civil rights and individual liberty. Placing a premium on detachment and freedom from restriction, they often pursue freelance work, self-employment, or a career in one of the traditional professions (law, medicine, etc.). In afflicted charts, career setbacks are likely to be due to extreme rebelliousness, eccentricity, wilfulness, isolation from others, burning bridges, and perverse or wrongheaded behaviour.
This position is common in the charts of entertainers, athletes, scientists, religious leaders, and literary figures. There is often a capacity for objective appraisal, emotional detachment, and logical reasoning that can lead to success in education, the law, psychiatry, psychological assessment, counselling, arbitration, mediation, negotiation, mathematics, engineering, theoretical science, analysis, history, archaeology, and other fields that rely on the impartial evaluation of persons, concepts, or situations. Aquarius symbolises modern technology and may confer an interest in electronics, computers, television, radio, the media, x-rays, photography, aeronautics, aircraft, meteorology, astronomy, outer space, inventing, medical or surgical techniques, and other technical endeavours.
With Aquarius prominent, you could do well at lecturing, teaching, giving workshops, functioning as a sales representative, or explaining technical subjects to others. There is a possibility of work in civil service, public corporations, the civil rights movement, or charitable and humanitarian agencies. Aquarius also represents what is odd, novel, unusual, weird, and out of the ordinary. Some with this placement become astrologers, magicians, ventriloquists, clowns, juggler, hypnotists, acupressurists, transcendentalists, alternative medicine healers, meditation teachers, Tarot readers, or psychic advisors. Your facility at following technical rules and procedures could lead to interests as varied as grammar, editing, bricklaying, roofing, or musical composition.
Further information about your career can be found by studying the house, sign, and aspects of Aquarius rulers, Uranus and Saturn. The same holds true for the decan ruler(s) described below.
THIRD DECAN: Because your Midheaven lies between 20 and 30 degrees of Aquarius, your career comes under the influence of the third decan of Aquarius, which is governed by LIBRA, VENUS, and Chaldean ruler, the MOON. Your capacity for balanced and impartial judgement can make you a fine judge, diplomat, military strategist, or mathematician. Your sense of form and harmony can lead to success in music, decorating, fashion, poetry, literature, theatre, or the arts. The emotional sensitivity of the Moon can lead to success as a counsellor, advisor, teacher, or therapist.
Cancer Second House Cusp
Income and resources are shown by the second house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving second house planets, the second house ruler(s), or the cusp of the second house.
With Cancer here, your work may make use of your intuition, emotional sensitivity, and empathic responses toward others. You could do well at tasks that require you to nurture, feed, shelter, clothe, or otherwise take care of basic human needs. This would be an excellent position for a nurse, psychologist, counsellor, psychotherapist, social worker, teacher, day care worker, cook, caterer, restaurateur, shopkeeper, nutritionist, laundry worker, sailor, gardener, or domestic worker. Your compassion for human suffering may draw you to work with neglected, ill, or abused members of society. The sensitivity of Cancer often expresses itself in music, poetry, dance, or the arts. Your interest in history, tradition, and the past may be reflected in your career. Cancer is a retentive sign that often suggests a good head for economics, an ability to make and conserve money, and a knack for financial management. Cancer also governs occupations related to the sea.
Scorpio Sixth House Cusp
Our daily work and working environment are shown by the sixth house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving sixth house planets, the sixth house ruler(s), or the cusp of the sixth house.
With Scorpio here, you are resourceful, multi-talented, and dedicated to your work. There is often an interest in power, control, and authority that can lead to an executive or managerial position or to a career in the law or in power politics. Scientific, investigative, and healing abilities are common, and may draw you to a career as a doctor, nurse, psychologist, psychotherapist, acupuncturist, physical therapist, veterinarian, or to other type of health related endeavours. Scorpio loves to ferret out secrets and to cut or probe beneath the surface. These traits can lead to success in fields connected with secrecy, mystery, scientific research, surgery, psychoanalysis, hypnosis, social work, criminology, detective work, investigative reporting, forensic prosecution, mining, psychic phenomena, occult studies, and so on.
Scorpio is also connected with joint finances, taxes, sex, death, rebirth, elimination, and transformation. Some with this position work in financial management, investing, life insurance, accounting, undertaking, sex therapy, sports medicine, renovation, demolition, pollution and environmental control, and related occupations. Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, may give an interest in work involving sharp instruments, weapons, explosives, fire, competition, athletics, and police or military matters. As a Water sign, Scorpio may confer an interest in shipping, sailing, or naval affairs. Many fine craftsmen and artisans also have this placement.
Planets in Signs and Houses
Sun in Pisces
The Sun symbolises our core identity and basic life energy. For us to feel authentic, our careers must allow for expression of our Sun sign's creativity and will to be.
Keywords: sensitive, intuitive, creative, imaginative, musical, artistic, poetic, caring, healing, self-sacrificing, humanitarian, spiritual, private, escapist, fond of solitude.
Pisces, the twin Fish swimming in opposite directions, is a sign that is kind, adaptable, sensitive, sympathetic, peaceable, and highly intuitive. Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces, is god of the boundless and transcendental seas. Pisceans are often philosophical, otherworldly, and imaginative. Pisces is often referred to as the sign of poets, artists, musicians, dreamers, psychics, and mystics. Many Pisceans are a bit absent-minded and inattentive. They are drawn to careers that enable them to make use of their rich fantasy lives or to explore alternate states of mind. They enjoy dealing with the unseen, mythological, or hidden aspects of reality; and they have a greater than average inclination to experiment with mind-altering methods or substances. Some go in search of mystical or spiritual experiences.
In a statistical survey of sun signs by Paul Field (1964), the largest number of prominent people in Who's Who were born under Pisces (with Capricorn in second place). Such prominence may be due to the traditional rulership of Pisces by expansive and entrepreneurial Jupiter, the king of Mount Olympus. In this same survey, Pisces produced many musicians, sea captains, and U.S. Senators and Representatives. The Piscean sensitivity to collective desires can make them popular politicians, entertainers, performers, models, musicians, or writers. Famous Pisceans include Sidney Poitier, Ansel Adams, Elizabeth Taylor, Albert Einstein, Meher Baba, John Steinbeck, George Washington, Senator Edward Kennedy, Frederick Chopin, George Harrison, Jackie Gleason, Darryl Strawberry, Rudolph Nureyev, Spike Lee, Rob Lowe, and male model Fabio.
Typical Piscean interests that may lead to career choices include medicine, hospital or prison work, hypnosis, pharmacology, dreams, mythology, psychology, the unconscious, spirituality, meditation, and theorising on a grand scale. Many Pisceans desire to render some type of service and may become nurses, doctors, teachers, social workers, therapists, anaesthesiologists, radiologists, hypnotists, clergy, or restaurateurs. Others find themselves working in the arts, photography, dance, music, theatre, travel, education, creative writing, or the occult. Pisces is a private sign that often prefers to work alone, in secrecy, or behind the scenes. Some become librarians, publishers, laboratory researchers, museum workers, or private investigators. Pisces is also linked to occupations dealing with water, fluids, alcohol, drugs, narcotics, chemicals, oils, and the oceans. Pisceans are able to sense what the public desires and can do well in fashion, advertising, acting, filmmaking, and other pursuits that depend on public taste.
Further clues to understanding your basic motivations can be found by studying the house, sign, and aspects of Pisces rulers Jupiter and Neptune. The same holds true for the decan ruler(s) described below.
THIRD DECAN: Your Sun lies between 20 and 30 degrees of Pisces (approximately March 11 - 20), your sense of identity and purpose in life come under the influence of the third decan of Pisces, which is governed by SCORPIO, PLUTO, and Chaldean ruler MARS. The Scorpionic influence often indicates a desire to penetrate, to cut away superficial layers, and to gain power and control. You may have an interest in medicine, surgery, research, psychoanalysis, the military, police work, investigation, psychic phenomena, human sexuality, chemistry, or work that involves iron, fire, explosives, or the use of weapons or instruments. You are fond of competition, challenge, and vigorous physical activity. Athletic talent is often present. Renaissance artist Michelangelo had natal Sun at 24 of Pisces as did Nazi doctor Josef Mengele who abused his knowledge and power in a Scorpionic way to torture the innocent. Other members of this decan include Rudolf Nureyev, Edward Albee, Albert Einstein, Walter Annenberg, Billy Crystal, Judd Hirsch, Kurt Russell, Liza Minnelli, Bruce Willis, Spike Lee, Jessica Lange, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, psychic Edgar Cayce, and Presidents Andrew Jackson and James Madison.
Sun in the Eleventh House
The Sun represents our individuality, willpower, and sense of self. The house occupied by the Sun reveals areas where we can feel authentic and express who we truly are.
An eleventh house Sun suggests a career in which you are able to use your expertise to advise, counsel, or help other people. This occurs commonly in the charts of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, attorneys, stockbrokers, financial consultants, teachers, lecturers, and people who work with groups or societies. There is often a talent for science, computers, abstract thought, mathematics, musical composition, the law, or other technical and rule-bound subjects. An interest in astrology, alternative healing, psychic phenomena, progressive ideas, or New Age matters is also common. Some with this placement devote themselves to humanitarian causes or defending the rights of others. You are likely to have friends in high places who help to advance your career.
Moon in Libra
The Moon represents our feelings, emotions, capacity for empathy, psychological reactions, and habitual or subconscious patterning. It signifies our need for security and our mothering instincts -- how we feel about, nurture, and care for one another.
A Libra Moon suggests that your are a person of refinement who treats others as equals. Your intuition, communication skills, and emotional sensitivity can lead to success in counselling, teaching, crisis work, mediation, diplomacy, psychology, hypnosis, healing, pastoral work, marketing, sales, or public relations. There is a sense of justice and fairness that can make you a fine lawyer, judge, arbitrator, negotiator, or advisor. Your logical mind may confer a talent for engineering, mathematics, aeronautics, physics, or any of the sciences.
You have a keen eye for balance, form, colour, proportion, and harmony, which may find expression in artistic endeavours. This position is common in charts of architects, fashion designers, musicians, photographers, artists, and other creative individuals. You would be a formidable opponent in an adversarial situation.

You enjoy the finer things in life and might fine employment in the hotel, restaurant, travel, vacation, or catering industries.
Moon in the Fifth House
A fifth house Moon suggests creativity, dramatic ability, and showmanship. There is often artistic, literary, or musical talent. This position enhances your popularity and could lead to success in politics, sports, public relations, the entertainment industry, publishing, or writing books for the mass market. You derive great satisfaction from providing amusement to others. This is an excellent placement for an actor, singer, dancer, or performer, whether it be on a theatrical stage or in a classroom. There is often athletic ability and a tendency to speculate or take risks. You are likely to be fond of caring for or working with children, and you probably want a family of your own.
Mercury in Aries
Mercury is the messenger of the gods. This first planet from the Sun represents our mind and thinking process -- how we learn, analyse, reason, and communicate. It also reveals how we use our hands, move our bodies, and explore our surroundings.
Mercury in fiery Aries symbolises an intellectual warrior with an alert, incisive, and pioneering intellect. You are likely to be clever and spontaneous in thought, and forceful and spirited in speech. Opponents cower before your capacity for debate, competition, and repartee. Your capacity for strategic thinking serves you well in any type of competitive situation. Athletes with the placement have great manual dexterity, agility, and lightning-fast reflexes. Guitarists and other musical instrumentalists often have this placement. You may enjoy learning about Aries-ruled matters such as battles, weapons, adventure, exploration, and so on. Sometimes your mind is so fast that you make snap judgements or jump impatiently from topic to topic. You may need to learn to concentrate better and to stick with a subject long enough to master it.
Mercury in the Eleventh House
An eleventh house Mercury suggests an original, inventive mind and a unique way of viewing reality. You tend to be progressive and somewhat unorthodox in your thinking. Your capacity for objective and dispassionate analysis can make you a fine scientist, mathematician, counsellor, advisor, psychiatrist, or psychotherapist. Your work may involve the use of computers and modern technology. There is usually a genuine desire to improve the lot of your fellow human beings.
Venus in Pisces
Venus is the goddess of love. This second planet from the Sun rules our affections, values, enjoyments, and how we relate to others. Venus also governs art, beauty, adornment, pleasure, fun, and our sense of appreciation of the finer things in life.
Venus in Pisces indicates a creative imagination that is useful in any type of artistic, musical, or literary work. There is often an interest in mythology, symbolism, dreams, illusion, poetry, religion, psychology, hypnosis, altered states, or in various types of healing. Some with this position value solitude and privacy, and they may prefer to work by themselves or in a quiet setting. Often there is an interest in assisting those who are disadvantaged, ill, oppressed, or less fortunate. Gains may come through work connected with hospitals, prisons, churches, libraries, large institutions, or places of confinement.
Venus in the Tenth House
A tenth house Venus suggests that you are ambitious to succeed and desirous of job security. Your work may involve artistic and creative endeavours or activities that require tact and diplomacy. Your social skills and ability to relate easily to others are helpful in careers in which you must promote yourself or sell something to others. There is a likelihood of public recognition at some time in your life. Gain may come through providing a product or service that appeals especially to women. Your career may centre on matters ruled by Venus, Taurus, or Libra (the signs ruled by Venus), or the houses of your chart with Taurus or Libra on the cusp. Some examples include entertainment, the arts, counselling, the balancing or adjusting of relationships, money management, the law, justice, and working with systems of theoretical or abstract thought.
Mars in Virgo
Mars, the fourth planet from the Sun, is the ancient god of war. Mars represents our libido, initiative, and physical energy. The sign and house placement of Mars reveal how and where we express our passion, assert ourselves, and expend our energy.
You excel at work that requires you to be flexible, versatile, and adaptable. You are a good communicator and a bit of a wheeler-dealer. Your common sense, self-discipline, and problem solving abilities are definite assets. Your manual dexterity may find expression in detail work, crafts, sports, cooking, gardening, landscaping, or other activities that require skilful use of the hands and upper extremities. You enjoy finding practical applications for what you learn, and you like to pass on your knowledge by training or teaching others. Although you have organisational ability, you may prefer not to be the one who is ultimately in charge but rather to be the power behind the throne. Careers that appeal to you involve being useful to others or rendering some type of service, often in one of the helping, healing, or teaching professions.
An interest in health, nutrition, hygiene, hands-on healing, and therapeutics could lead to a job in the fitness, medical, or pharmaceutical industries. Some with this position enjoy caring for plants, trees, pets, or small animals. Your talent for analysis, critical thinking, and dealing with detailed information may indicate an aptitude for writing, science, mathematics, diagnosis, or one of the technical fields. There is usually an ability to gather and organise large amounts of data into a useful format. Your faults include being overly critical or excessively sceptical, worrying too much, and being unable to see the forest for the trees.
Mars in the Fourth House
A fourth house Mars suggests that one or both of your parents has had a powerful influence on your development that directly affects your choice of career. You have a keen appreciation of how past history affects present behaviour and may wish to pursue a career that involves healing, psychology, psychotherapy, medical treatments, or other activities that enhance mental or physical well-being. There is often a talent for work related to land, agriculture, home building or restoration, domestic matters, and real estate.
Jupiter in Virgo
Jupiter, the fifth planet from the sun, is the king of Mount Olympus and the most benefic of all the planets. Jupiter represents expansion, wisdom, the higher mind, and the broadening of horizons. The sign and house placements of Jupiter show how and where we encounter good fortune and continue to grow in body, mind, and spirit.
Jupiter in Virgo enhances the practicality, discrimination, and analytical nature of that sign. There is often a fair degree of scepticism, a talent for research or teaching, and a strong desire to be of service to others. You have well-developed verbal skills and analytic abilities that could lead to a job involving editing, writing, criticism, or any form of communication. Many with this position have healing ability and gravitate toward fields connected with health, nutrition, therapeutics, or hygiene.
This placement also occurs frequently in the charts of those who succeed at building, manufacturing, agriculture, food services, education, literature, poetry, languages, grammar, medicine, mental health, the service professions, and technical fields. Typical jobs include grocers, store clerks, secretaries, clerical workers, computer programmers, and technical analysts. Lawyers with Jupiter here are especially meticulous in studying every detail of their cases. Whatever you do, you are a methodical, orderly worker who is able to follow complex rules and proceed logically step by step to achieve a desired goal.
Jupiter in the Fourth House
A fourth house Jupiter suggests that benefits may come from land, real estate, homes, hotels, domestic matters, or from home building, decorating, or restoration. You may inherit land or property, and you are likely to be financially secure in the later part of your life. You have a strong appreciation of tradition and past history, especially how they affect the present situation. Whatever you do, you understand the need to lay a firm foundation and structure upon which to build future developments.
Saturn in Aquarius
Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, is the most distant planet that can be seen by the naked eye. It marks the outer limits of the visible solar system and has been called at various times the Cosmic Teacher, Father Time, and the Grim Reaper. Saturn symbolises limitations, hardships, boundaries, fears, and the lessons we must learn. Like all good teachers, Saturn rewards hard work, discipline, and persistent effort.
Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius, and, when placed here, it enhances your capacity for dispassionate, impartial, and objective thinking. You have a strong sense of social justice and responsibility, and you genuinely respect for the freedom and rights of others. Because Aquarius represents the modern era, this placement may give an interest in modern science, astronomy, space exploration, or the serious study of New Age topics. There is often a talent for technology, precise methodology, mathematics, statistics, electronics, or computer-related subjects. A fondness for lecturing, teaching, and writing is common. You may also have a fine sense of form, structure, and timing that benefits your work.
Saturn in the Ninth House
A ninth house Saturn often indicates a studious person who is good at science and other ponderous subjects. You may enjoy reading the classics or other weighty philosophical, or religious literature. Teaching ability is common, and you may end up writing and publishing something in your field. You may have a knack for taking the pulse of public tastes and being able to forecast future trends. Many with this position have an interest in politics, social science, culture, higher education, anthropology, law, psychology, computer science, the Internet, or the serious study of occult subjects like astrology and Tarot. Business related travel is also common.
THE THREE OUTER PLANETS
In our solar system, Saturn is most distant planet from the earth that is visible to the naked eye. The three outer planets -- Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto -- lie beyond Saturn's orbit and can only be seen by telescope. These outer planets spend many years travelling through each sign, and thus they tend to affect an entire generation. Only their house placements and close aspects are significant in the interpretation of an individual horoscope. Though not personally significant by itself, the sign placement of the three outer planets can reinforce similar traits found elsewhere in the horoscope.
Uranus in the Eleventh House
Uranus is the first planet beyond Saturn's orbit and outside the boundary of the visible solar system. It symbolises breaking through barriers via originality, inventiveness, and progressive ideas. Uranus reveals where we can express our novelty and uniqueness.
With an eleventh house Uranus, you tend to attract friends who are unusual, offbeat, unconventional, original, and inventive. Your own humanitarian ideals and hopes for a better world may interest you in fields related to healing, social work, psychiatry, psychotherapy, counselling, religion, or astrology. You may seek to lighten the spirits of others through music, writing, or entertainment. There may also be a talent for science, computers, science, engineering, technology, radio, TV, or electronics.
Uranus in Aries
The maverick planet Uranus in the pioneering sign Aries marks a generation of original and innovative leaders in their chosen fields. Many with this placement desire to "boldly go where no man has gone before."
Neptune in the Fourth House
Neptune is the ancient god of the oceans, which are fluid, without form, and boundless. It dissolves the limitations set up by Saturn. This planet symbolises all that is cloudy, nebulous, dreamlike, mystical, or illusory. Neptune represents compassion, intuition, empathy, sacrifice, and spiritual development. The placement of Neptune reveals where we may care for others, pursue our ideals, and be at one with the universe.
With a fourth house Neptune, you want to get in touch with your family origins and personal roots. You desire to understand what motivates people's psyches, and a potential early contact with someone suffering from mental difficulties may lead to work in fields related to psychology, psychotherapy, counselling, social work, or activities that benefit children. Some with this position express themselves emotionally through art, music, film, writing, or the stage. With Neptune here, you may have grown up travelling, or your career may necessitate long journeys that take you away from home and family. It is important that you set aside space at home where you can retreat, meditate, and pursue spiritual or creative endeavours. Many with this position enjoy activities involving water or prefer to live near a large body of water or the sea.
Neptune in Virgo
You belong to a generation that values the ideal of rendering service to humanity. Neptune in Virgo produces many who put their artistic talents and creative imagination to practical uses, often in fields connected with providing care, teaching, education, therapeutics, counselling, or healing to others. There may be a fondness for seclusion or for working quietly or alone, as in a laboratory or research setting. If Neptune occupies one of the occupational houses (2, 6, or 10), you may have an interest in health care, psychology, mental illness, medicine, pharmaceuticals, podiatry, or chemistry.
Pluto in the Second House
Pluto is the ancient god of the underworld who ruled the realm of death and darkness. It represents immense power, transformation, radical change, renewal, and rebirth. The placement of Pluto reveals where we express our needs for control and regeneration.
A second house Pluto suggests that you are multi-talented, resourceful, and determined to succeed financially. You may have a special talent that makes you stand out from the crowd. Pluto digs beneath the surface to get to the bottom of things. Gains may come through matters related to Scorpio (e.g., money management, healing, medicine, surgery, psychology, scientific research, investigation, police work, penetration, cutting, deep understanding, occult studies, mystery, psychic phenomena, sexuality, elimination, death) or through activities governed by your natal house with Scorpio on its cusp. If Pluto is well aspected, there is a potential to earn large amounts of money.
Pluto in Cancer
Pluto in Cancer produces patriotic individuals who are devoted to family and have a strong sense of traditional values.
North Node in Pisces
The Moon's North Node reveals areas of potential for growth.
In Pisces, the Moon's North Node advises you to develop your capacity to be alone, meditate, work in solitude, and appreciate the psychological and spiritual dimensions of life. You benefit by utilising your intuition, fantasy life, compassion, and imagination in your work. A talent for healing, hospital work, or research is not uncommon. Photography, film, music, art, dance, and creative writing may be of interest. You should avoid becoming a "workaholic" and you should be alert to a tendency to get involved in unhealthy or destructive relationships.
North Node in the Tenth House
In the tenth house, the Moon's Node suggests that you pursue your ambition to achieve recognition and public status by making your unique and lasting mark upon the world. By concentrating your effort on your career goals, you can rise to a position of leadership, authority, expertise, prominence, or championship. The challenge of this position is to maintain your integrity and to avoid seeking notoriety for less than honourable public deeds.
Part of Fortune in Capricorn
The Lot of Fortune is an Arabic Part related to material well-being.
With the Part of Fortune in Capricorn, you are an ambitious, pragmatic, patient, and resolute worker who gets the job done "one step at a time." You can succeed at politics, government work, administration, or in an executive capacity. A talent for business, finance, or investing is common. You like to be in charge of your work and dislike taking orders. Your strong desire to succeed can sometimes result in "workaholic" behaviour.
Part of Fortune in the Eighth House
The Part of Fortune shows where good fortune lies. In the eighth house, it often suggests that you can succeed in a career in which you manage the money or resources of others. Many with this position have an interest in matters related to healing, medicine, psychology, research, chemistry, investigation, penetration, cutting, elimination, sex, death, psychic phenomena, or the occult. A fascination with power can lead to a career in politics, police work, the military, or government. There is often great ambition to advance in life and assume a position of authority.
Balance of Elements and Modalities
Introversion and Extraversion
The follow section takes a broad look at your chart from the viewpoint of the predominance of the four elements or temperaments (Fire, Earth, Air, and Water) and the three modalities or modes of action (Cardinal or initiating, Fixed or stabilising, Mutable or adapting and transitioning). It draws on Jungian psychology and Jung's notions of introversion and extraversion to describe how the same astrological trait manifests for introverted versus extraverted personalities.
Introverts are inwardly directed, prefer to work alone or with a small number of people, generally reflect before they act, and would rather read about or ponder an issue than socialise or talk with others. Extraverts show the opposite characteristics. Extraverts are outwardly directed and come across as sociable, positive, outgoing, and confident. They love to talk and socialise, and they prefer to be with others rather than alone.
The value in determining whether you are more introverted or more extraverted is that the same astrological factors can be utilised to pursue different careers depending on whether you are focused inwardly (introverted) or outwardly (extraverted). For example, a person with a preponderance of the element water/feeling in his or her chart might prefer to write and publish poetry, if introverted, or might use that water element to become a successful actor or performing musician if extraverted.
If you have access to the Internet, you might wish to take the Keirsey Temperament Sorter Quiz to determine your degree of introversion and extraversion. It is located at http://www.keirsey.com/cgi-bin/keirsey/newkts.cgi where you can also read about the career implications of your personality style.
Having decided whether you are more introverted or extraverted, read the following section to see which elements and modalities are most emphasised in your natal chart.
Keywords: communicative, verbal, abstract, logical, objective, theoretical, mental, socially aware, interactive, idea- and relationship-oriented.
Air signs are drawn to careers in which they can play with ideas and think abstractly or conceptually. They like to deal with the relationships among people, ideas, or situations. They easily acquire, analyse, weigh, and evaluate information. Air signs represent idea people who are skilled communicators. Air likes to circulate and needs lots of social contact and interactions. Air people like to work in settings with a lot of activity and a light-hearted atmosphere where they can talk with others, ask questions, share ideas, write things down, and receive mental and social stimulation. They like variety in the workplace and want to make their mark on the world through their intelligent, graceful, or clever way of doing things.
An abundance of air in a chart correlates with the Jungian function of thinking. Like Mr. Spock of StarTrek, thought, reason, principles, objectivity, and logic guide you. You have an appreciation of the law of cause and effect, and you take a long-term, historical view of events and situations. Your approach to problem solving is organised, systematic, thoughtful, and analytical. Most likely you also have administrative ability. Unless water is strong in your chart, you are likely to be somewhat lacking in the feeling function and will need to work on developing your emotional awareness.
Introverted thinkers are drawn toward careers where they can develop or elaborate scientific or philosophical theories. They are conceptual thinkers who enjoy seeing relationships and logical interconnections among various elements and basic assumptions of their theoretical system. Many mathematicians, theoretical scientists, writers, teachers, philosophers, and composers of orchestral music belong to this group.
Extraverted thinkers like to apply their systematic, organised, and conceptual thinking to the external world. They are drawn to careers such as engineering, administration, management, and the law. They like to bring order and efficient functioning to the world around them. Some literally work with air in fields like aviation and meteorology.
Keywords: flexible, ingenious, resourceful, adaptable, intellectual, communicative
Many planets in mutable signs suggest a career that makes use of your mental agility, adaptability, dexterity, facility with words, and love of variety. You are probably a good communicator with a knack for establishing contacts with others. Your flexibility, diplomacy, and skill at objective evaluation are key assets. Believing that "variety is the spice of life," you sometimes "have too many irons in the fire."
Abundant mutability is often found in the charts of writers, teachers, publishers, editors, communicators, inventors, and those who must use their linguistic abilities and intellectual talents as an essential part of their occupations. The physical agility and dexterity of mutable signs may indicate a talent for dance or other forms of bodily expressiveness.
Keywords: outgoing, assertive, energetic, adventurous, enthusiastic, self-expressive, active, pioneering, freedom-loving, creative, intuitive, expansive, future-oriented.
An emphasis on houses 1, 5, and 9 indicates a need for independence, creative self-expression, and a broadening of horizons through expanded awareness. You generally like to make your own decisions and to be your own boss rather than assume a subordinate position. Your career should allow scope for creativity, risk-taking, following up on your hunches, and motivating others. Your vitality, energy, drive, and enthusiasm are keys to success in your work. Many successful performers, politicians, entrepreneurs, salespersons, and athletes have this pattern in their charts.
Keywords: constant, reliable, goal-oriented, constructive, persevering, business-minded
A predominance of succedent houses (2, 5, 8, and 11) suggests that you are resourceful, appreciate the value of things, and have a knack for managing finances. Many stockbrokers, bankers, accountants, tax advisors, and financial consultants have this emphasis in their charts. You are good at consolidating and building upon ideas and actions initiated by others. There is often business acumen, a talent for creative self-expression, and a determination to make one's hopes and wishes a reality. You value stability, and you understand the importance of careful planning to achieve steady and reliable results.
Planets in Aspect
Introduction to Aspects
As mentioned in the Introduction, the planets signify fundamental urges, drives, or functions of the human personality. Astrologers have discovered that when planets either align (conjoin) or form certain configurations (angular patterns) with one another, a blending or combination of their energies occurs. These patterns are called "aspects" and are measured in terms of the angles formed by the planets.
The aspects are divided into major (0, 60, 90, 120, and 180 degrees) or minor (all other aspects, e.g., 30, 45, 72, 135, 144, 150 degrees, etc.). Major aspects are more evident and generally have a more profound effect on personality and vocation. The names of the aspects, according to the number of degrees between planets, are as follows. Major: 0 = conjunction, 60 = sextile, 90 = square, 120 = trine, and 180 = opposition. Minor: 30 = semi-sextile, 45 = semi-square, 72 = quintile, 135 = sesquiquadrate, 144 = biquintile, and 150 = inconjunct, or more properly the quincunx.
Aspects can be either easy or difficult. Of the major aspects, the sextile (60 degrees) and trine (120 degrees) are considered easy or harmonious whereas the square (90 degrees) and opposition (180 degrees) are considered difficult or stressful. The conjunction can be either easy or difficult depending on the nature of the planets involved. A planet involved in difficult aspects is considered "afflicted" since it carries some form of hardship through the difficult aspect.
In the next section, you will find a detailed description of the most significant aspects in your chart. At first reading, the large amount of material in this section may seem a bit overwhelming. Rather than get lost in the details, look for repeated themes that reinforce or clarify the earlier sections of this report.
The aspect descriptions below are arranged in order of "strength," which is a measure of whether the aspect is major (stronger) or minor (weaker) and how close the planets are to being at exactly the angle specified by the aspect. The closer the aspect is to exact, the stronger its influence is likely to be. However, if the planets involved in the aspect are strongly emphasised in your chart, then even a weak aspect between them can be quite significant.
Moon opposite Uranus (Strength: 5.84)
Moon/Uranus aspects often indicate musical talent, originality, and technical ability. There may have been something odd or erratic in your emotional life, especially in your relationship with your mother, which has affected your career path. The detachment of Uranus combined with the Moon's emotionality may manifest as a kind of cool, or even icy, brilliance. Others may view you as revolutionary.
Mars conjunct Neptune (Strength: 5.60)
Mars/Neptune aspects join the vigorous libidinal drive of Mars with the dreamy imaginative nature of Neptune. This frequently produces physical grace and beauty, and is common in the charts of notably handsome men and beautiful women. It also enhances one's creative and dramatic abilities. A talent for athletics, dance, and other forms of energetic movement is not uncommon. Used constructively, this energy can lead to success in music, singing, sports, theatre, film, design, creative writing, or the arts. The energy of Mars combined with the intuition of Neptune may indicate a talent for occupations involving psychology, spiritual or metaphysical studies, stock market investing, or any kind of work that requires "second sight" or "listening with the third ear." If this conjunction participates in stressful, there is potential for low self-esteem, substance abuse, sexual addiction, or other escapist behaviours. Problems can also arise through the use of mind-altering substances.
Sun trine Pluto (Strength: 3.93)
The Sun aspecting Pluto indicates great emotional intensity, the courage of your convictions, and the determination to succeed or assume a position of authority. Pluto is lord of the underworld, and the life becomes a series of deaths and rebirths, at least on a psychological level. This is a powerful aspect because it links your sense of self, represented by the Sun, with Pluto's capacity for both revolutionary transformation and massive destruction. Your work may involve you with matters related to birth, death, sex, power, control, elimination, or rejuvenation. You are able to get to the root of things, and you could do well as a researcher, counsellor, or psychotherapist. An interest in medicine and healing is also common. Psychic ability is sometimes indicated.
Sun/Pluto aspects indicate a strong desire to probe beneath the surface in search of profound understanding. Many with this aspect are drawn to a type of work that involves crisis situations that force them to confront the darker side of human nature. A talent for penetrating research can lead to success in fields such as psychology, human sexuality, psychoanalysis, scientific research, detective work, mining, surgery, or any endeavour that involves digging deeply into something. There is often an interest in science and in understanding atomic power and the workings of the universe.
Moon trine Midheaven (Strength: 3.84)
With the Moon closely aspecting the Midheaven, you feel a need to make emotional contact with others or to meet some public need as part of your career. You are likely to be popular and may achieve public recognition. Your ability to comprehend other people's feelings can lead to success in fields as varied as politics, psychotherapy, nursing, social work, education, catering, acting, entertaining, popular writing, sales, and public relations. Your empathic and intuitive understanding can make you a fine counsellor, healer, psychologist, teacher, psychic, or astrologer. The Moon is also connected with food and drink, shelter, nurturing, cooking, farming, gardening, milk products, shopkeeping, domestic services, real estate, the land, property, travel, and goods or services that appeal especially to women. You have a good sense of humour and may even have comedic talent. An appreciation of music is also common.
The Gauquelin research found that a prominent Moon was frequent in the charts of authors and politicians but was uncommon in the charts of sports champions. Through its rulership of the sign Cancer, the Moon may indicate a career that caters to public tastes or provides domestic products or services. Through its connection with the Fourth House, the Moon can indicate an interest in meteorology, geology, archaeology, ecology, and the study of the earth. You appreciate the value of laying firm foundations and have a strong sense of family, history, and tradition. Whatever work you do, you are likely to find yourself taking care of others or looking after someone or something.
Uranus sextile Midheaven (Strength: 3.00)
With Uranus closely aspecting the Midheaven, you value your freedom, autonomy, and personal independence. You may wish to be self-employed, do freelance work, or pursue an unconventional occupation. There frequently exists some unique or unusual talent that makes you stand out from the crowd. You are drawn to careers that involve creativity, inventiveness, originality, objectivity, insight, and alternative methods. Often there is scientific or technical ability and a desire to reform society or improve the lot of humankind.
Some with this placement suffer an early estrangement from one of the parents, often the mother, who may have been in some way strange or eccentric. Such an experience can lead to an interest in psychiatry, psychology, social work, or one of the helping professions. Through its rulership of Aquarius, Uranus may indicate work requiring the application of specialised rules or techniques. Typical Uranian careers may involve computers, the Internet, science, technology, engineering, physics, mechanics, aviation, meteorology, radio or TV, comedy, educational films, electronics, medicine, psychiatry, psychology, research, inventions, astronomy, astrology, New Age interests, social science, humanitarian causes, or civil rights. Whatever you do, you hate drudgery and boring routine, and you need to keep learning about what makes things tick.
Venus opposite Jupiter (Strength: 2.97)
Venus/Jupiter contacts indicate popularity, grace of expression, and a dramatic disposition. Such traits favour occupations that deal with public tastes or entertainment. There is usually much idealism and an interest in philosophy. This aspect also reveals a liking for fun, exploration, and amorous adventures. Sometimes the individual loves being on Mount Olympus and becomes indolent, self-absorbed, or overly fond of adulation. A strong desire to assume a leadership position can lead to an interest in politics, or in heading some type of movement or organisation. The downside of this aspect is that things may come too easily so that you avoid confronting certain challenges that could help you to grow.
Moon square Pluto (Strength: 2.50)
Moon/Pluto aspects lend great intensity to your emotional life and may prompt you to champion causes, or to assume extreme or fanatical positions. You have a strong interest in understanding what motivates people; and you may be drawn to psychology, medicine, or any of the healing arts. You readily make emotional contact with those who are suffering. There is an interest in all that is secret or mysterious, often with a corresponding talent for research or investigation. You have good intuitive abilities and may even be psychic. A love of power, freedom, travel, and adventure is common. Stressful Moon/Pluto aspects often indicate childhood insecurity, emotional vulnerability, and a tendency to be somewhat of a loner.
Sun opposite Jupiter (Strength: 2.29)
Sun/Jupiter aspects are generally a kindly and benevolent influence, and are common in charts of those who pursue a career in one of the professions (medicine, law, university professor, etc.). You are likely to be quite intelligent, and capable of significant intellectual achievements. There may be talent for writing, teaching, or publishing. You can benefit from ninth and twelfth house matters such as religion, philosophy, foreign interests, journeys, the sea, the law, literature, medicine, and the sciences. It can also signal success in sports, or in a military or naval career. Stressful Sun/Jupiter aspects warn that you can get into difficulty because of your restlessness, lack of discipline, lack of moderation, foolish risk-taking, or juvenile and rebellious flaunting of authority.
Venus opposite Neptune (Strength: 1.77)
Venus/Neptune contacts suggest sex appeal, a charming personality, an attractive physical appearance, and a pleasing manner of self-expression. You impress others as a person of feeling and sensitivity. There is often talent for music, performing, dance, theatre, film, playwriting, poetry, photography, or the arts. You tend to be a bit dreamy, emotional, sensitive, idealistic, and visionary. You may benefit from matters related to liquids or the sea, or from Neptunian concerns such as alcohol, narcotics, drugs, and tobacco. Some with this aspect develop a strong interest in spirituality or mysticism. Your vivid imagination, keen intuition, and fondness for illusion are assets in any occupation you pursue. Problems with this aspect include a tendency toward escapism, taking the easy way out, or to becoming too dependent on other people, alcohol, or drugs. Carter calls this an aspect of "divine discontent" that bestows a restless seeking for an unattainable ideal. It can sometimes indicate emotional instability and potential involvement in questionable and potentially scandalous relationships.
Mars semi-square Pluto (Strength: 1.20)
Mars/Pluto aspects are emotionally intense combinations that increase your assertiveness, willpower, physical energy, and sexual drive. You are a natural born fighter who is likely to be adventurous, passionate, and resolute in pursuing what you desire. Your intense need to win at almost any cost can get you into hot water. Dealing with some type of risk, danger, confrontation, or conflict may be an aspect of your work. You have a strong desire to uncover hidden matters and penetrate beneath the surface to understand how things work. Healing ability is often present. There may be an interest in death or things of the dead. This aspect carries with it a certain explosiveness and risk of violence. You should choose your associates carefully, guard against becoming obsessed with an idea, and avoid engaging in compulsive or dangerous behaviours. Otherwise, you run the risk of encountering your own version of General Custer's "last stand."
Moon semi-square Neptune (Strength: 1.09)
Moon/Neptune contacts increase your emotional sensitivity and may indicate musical or artistic talent. There is often an interest in the hidden aspects of reality, divination, spiritual matters, healing, alternative medicine, psychology, social work, and the underlying or unconscious motivations of human beings. This aspect is common, for example, in the charts of psychiatrists and their patients. Your easy-going personality conceals a burning ambition to achieve something great or outstanding. You will need regular periods of respite, solitude, or meditation to regroup your forces as you seek to make your mark on the world. There may be a talent for film, acting, dance, fashion, sculpting, design, food preparation, speculative investing, legal or political strategizing, theoretical speculation, or other creative endeavours. A fondness for travel abroad is often present.
Stressful Moon/Neptune contacts indicate a tendency toward gullibility, discontent, disillusion, excessive perfectionism, intrigue, abuse of substances, or involvement in scandal. There is some risk of deception with this aspect, and you should avoid any kind of dishonest or shady dealings. You are prone to play the martyr in close relationships; often sacrificing your own legitimate needs simply to maintain an unhealthy relationship. In extreme cases, there is a tendency to engage in fanciful and impractical thinking that borders on self-delusion.
THE SATURN CYCLE: YOUR CAREER PEAKS AND VALLEYS
Our careers undergo cyclic changes that parallel the movement of Saturn through the birth chart. The 29-1/2 year Saturn cycle can be divided into four 7-1/3-year quarter cycles. As Saturn crosses the IC at the bottom of the chart, we begin to ride the wave upward from a period of subjective preoccupation and worldly obscurity to a new cycle of vocational growth. During the first and second quarters, which last just under 15 years, we establish, build, and develop our new career directions. When Saturn then crosses the MC at the top of the chart, we reach a career peak and consolidate our gains. We are now on the downward slope of the wave (the third and fourth quarters of this Saturn cycle). About seven years after Saturn conjoins the MC, we go through another period of intense vocational activity, just as Saturn is crossing into the final quarter, which is a seven-year stretch of relative obscurity, inner reflection and reassessment. We then start a new 29-1/2 year career cycle as Saturn again crosses the IC. The section below gives specific details based on a horoscope cast for your date, time, and place of birth.
In 1940, Grant Lewi published his groundbreaking analysis of Saturn's influence on career. Saturn takes about 29-1/2 years to complete a journey around the zodiac. During the time when Saturn crosses the 4th house cusp or IC (the "bottommost" or "darkest" point in the horoscope), Lewi noted that people "either fade completely from the picture, or take a new start in life, depending on their age and other considerations" in the chart. This is similar to a New Moon, a time of darkness and new beginnings. During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through LEO are SEPTEMBER 1975 - JULY 1978, THEN JULY 2005 - SEPTEMBER 2007, and finally AUGUST 2034 - JULY 2037. At some point during these years Saturn will cross your IC, marking the end stages of a period of vocational obscurity. Saturn's passage through the sign at the bottom of your chart SIGNALS A NEW BEGINNING OR A CHANGE OF DIRECTION IN YOUR CAREER.
Astrologer Don Jacobs further elaborated Lewi's findings. According to Jacobs, the first quarter cycle (the 7-1/3-years when Saturn is travelling through roughly the fourth, fifth, and sixth houses as it approaches a square to the Midheaven) is a time of career "building." During this first phase we are establishing a new career or laying the foundations for a new direction in our current occupation. Jacobs calls the second quarter cycle (the next 7-1/3-years, beginning when Saturn squares the Midheaven to transit roughly the seventh, eighth and ninth houses) the period of "triumph" when the efforts of the period of building are starting to pay off.
About 14 1/2 years after crossing the IC or fourth house cusp, Saturn reaches the Midheaven, the "highest" and "brightest" point of the horoscope. This is similar to a Full Moon and marks a peak in our career development. IN YOUR CHART, A CAREER PEAK WILL OCCUR WHEN SATURN PASSES THROUGH AQUARIUS, the sign on your Midheaven. During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through AQUARIUS are FEBRUARY 1991 - JANUARY 1994, and then MARCH 2020 - MARCH 2023. These years are a time of achievement, accomplishment, harvest, recognition, and the assumption of new responsibilities. You reap the rewards of all the work you have done for the past fourteen years. However, if you have cut corners or prepared badly, the time has now come to pay the piper.
After passing the Midheaven, Saturn goes through a roughly 7-1/3-year period when it transits the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth houses (the third quarter cycle) as it approaches a square to the Midheaven. Jacobs calls this the period of "coasting" when we enjoy the fruits of our career success at the Midheaven. The final 7-1/3-year period commences with Saturn's square to the Midheaven and continues as it transits the first, second, and third houses. Jacobs calls this the period of "obscurity" when we become self-absorbed and directed inward, contemplating our lives and thinking about future possibilities. This subjective, inner period ends when Saturn again crosses the IC and begins a new cycle.
Prominent Chart Factors
THE MOST ACTIVE PLANETS, SIGNS, & HOUSES
The following section lists the most prominent or active planets, points (Ascendant and Midheaven), signs, and houses in your horoscope. Because the houses are determined by the exact time of birth, dominant houses are not calculated for charts with unknown birth times. You naturally tend to express the energy and symbolism of these planets, signs, and houses in most aspects of your life, including your vocation. The rating system used here is based on the number and closeness of the aspects formed by each of the planets and points.
The dominant planets and points (Ascendant, Midheaven) reveal your basic drives and natural aptitudes that can be developed for their career potential. Below are descriptions of the planets and points that are most active in your horoscope.
Moon Dominant (Strength: 15.81)
The Moon symbolises emotions, moods, and instinctive behaviours. You are likely to be highly intuitive, nurturing, caring, empathic, and sensitive to public moods and tastes. You have a strong appreciation of history and of the influence of the past on present and future behaviour. You value tradition and may wish to preserve historical treasures for future generations. You also enjoy working with people and could do well in fields that take care of the emotional, physical, or developmental needs of others. You have an intuitive feel for what the public needs or desires.
Teachers, nurses, cooks, midwives, counsellors, psychologists, social workers, environmentalists, preservationists, market researchers, healers, psychotherapists, veterinarians, physicians, and personnel workers often have a prominent Moon in their charts. Musical interest and/or ability are frequent. The Moon is connected to the tides and the seas, and you might be interested in a career in the navy or the maritime trades. An active Moon also suggests a fondness for travel and communication. It is also common in the charts of those who deal with the public or whose work appeals especially to women. The Gauquelin research found a strong Moon in charts of politicians and successful writers.
If the Moon forms many stressful aspects, you may suffer from a fear of competition and a tendency toward shyness or emotional dependency. To achieve success, you may need to master an inclination to be overly sensitive to the moods and feelings of others.
Uranus Dominant (Strength: 14.34)
Uranus is the planet of invention, sudden insight, independent thinking, originality, scientific breakthroughs, abstract thought, space exploration, futuristic endeavours, and the New Age of Aquarius. You are likely to be a creative individual who makes ample use of computers and modern technology. You have a unique way of viewing the world, and you march to the beat of your own drummer. Uranus often confers an interest in the systematic study of human motivation and behaviour. Your capacity for objectivity and impartial reasoning can make you a fine social scientist, advisor, or psychiatrist.
With Uranus strong in your chart, you may be drawn to occupations that are unusual and off the beaten path. A prominent Uranus can indicate technical ability, computer literacy; talent for mathematics, electronics, or the sciences; an interest in working with groups of people, or a fondness for careers in the television or movie industries. Your fine sense of rhythm and timing might lead you to work involving music or dance. An interest in astrology and intuitive pathways to knowledge is common. You are likely to be highly idealistic and may work in some type of humanitarian, altruistic, ecumenical, or utopian endeavour that seeks to build a better world.
If Uranus forms many stressful aspects, you may be rather high-strung and inclined toward self-opinionated and wilful behaviour in the workplace. You will need to learn to co-operate with others rather than always having things your own way.
Pluto Dominant (Strength: 12.28)
Pluto indicates an urge to penetrate beneath the surface to achieve a deep understanding of other people or of anything that is secret or occult. You enjoy bringing hidden matters to light. An interest in power, money, control, manipulation, healing, the use of force, depth psychology, psychic phenomena, sexuality, and the mysteries of life and death are common. Raw energy, power, and animal magnetism are likely to be reflected in your career. Your own appreciation or experience of the depths of human suffering may influence your career path.
Pluto is active in the charts of those whose work involves insurance, finance, banking, economics, money management, investigation, accounting, mathematics, technology, chemicals, munitions, explosives, nuclear power, physics, or scientific research. Prominent members of the recording and broadcasting industries often have this factor in their charts. This factor is also found among those whose work requires group co-operation, managers of franchises, and writers who produce works that are part of a series.
If Pluto is involved in many stressful aspects, you may have a tendency to be dictatorial or to become the brunt of coercive conditions in the workplace. To achieve success, you will need to master any inclination toward manipulative or obsessive-compulsive behaviour.
THE MOST ACTIVE SIGNS
The signs of the zodiac indicate basic motivations, preferences, attitudes, and reaction patterns. Below is a list of the most active signs in your horoscope in descending order of their dominance in your chart.
Aries Dominant (Strength: 102.74)
Key Phrases: I am, I pioneer, I assert, I lead
Aries, the Ram, is adventurous, daring, pioneering, confident, assertive, rash, cocky, and trailblazing. With Aries strong, you are likely to have initiative and leadership ability because of your self-directed, competitive, energetic, headstrong, and dynamic approach to life. Aries, always a doer and shaker, enjoys action, challenge, and physical activity. Aries does well in crisis situations and is often skilled in the management of human resources. People with a prominent Aries are good at starting new projects and motivating others to action, but they are often weak on the follow-through.
The hard-headed mentality of Aries' ruling planet, Mars, may give an interest in fields such as mechanics, manufacturing, carpentry, munitions, iron work, engineering, inventing, discovering, debating, sales, athletics, police, the military, EMT work, firefighting, surgery, dentistry, medicine, neurology, or fields that require penetration, the use of machines, or the directed use of force. Aries likes to take chances, push the limit, start new projects, work freelance, act courageously, use tools and fire, wield weapons, and engage in rapid motion. People with a strong Aries include explorers, pioneers, initiators, motivators, executives, directors, and entrepreneurs.
Pisces Dominant (Strength: 82.94)
Key Phrases: I believe, I imagine, I commune with the universe
Pisces is imaginative, idealistic, compassionate, adaptable, intuitive, private, artistic, musical, poetic, illusory, spiritual, psychic, and otherworldly. Individuals with Pisces prominent typically like to work alone, quietly, or behind the scenes. They gravitate toward the helping and healing professions and can be found in hospitals, prisons, museums, ashrams, libraries, monasteries, reserves, and other places of solitude, retreat, respite, meditation, prayer, or confinement. They enjoy theoretical speculation and like to ponder the mysteries of the universe. There is frequently an interest in art, music, literature, theatre, dance, poetry, creative writing, dreams, illusions, archetypes, mythology, and spirituality.

Individuals with a strong Virgo need to be of service. They make excellent educators, teachers, trainers, writers, researchers, investigators, computer programmers, doctors, nurses, therapists, healers, and health care providers. They also so well at other forms of service, such as the armed forces, police work, firefighting, civil service, repair work, food services, car mechanics, service technicians, and so on. Virgo's industrious, discriminating, and exacting nature makes them naturals for any kind of systematic, detailed, or methodical work, but also gives a tendency to worry and fuss.
